Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

Sometimes I just can’t help it….I judge a book by its cover. And this book’s cover is what drew me to read it even though I was supposed to begin Game of Thrones. The girl with a murderous look on her face, fabulous red gown, and crossbow just seemed to scream “Yes! Read me! Read me!” So I did. And while a convent of assassin nuns steeped in the politics of medieval France might not sound like the ideal summer read, it really was. This book, though copious in page length, was a pretty fast read–filled with adventure, mysterious, dark, handsome strangers, and yes…assassin nuns serving the patron saint of death. While the premise might be a bit unbelievable, if you can suspend your disbelief this is a fun, entertaining read that treads the boundaries of fantasy, historical fiction, and romance.
